Beavers Out-Pace Zags

Mar 19, 2022

DEXTER LAKE – The Oregon State men's rowing team took down Gonzaga Saturday morning at Dexter Lake, as the two sides battled through the rain.
The Beavers' Varsity 8 out-paced the Zags by five seconds, clocking in at 6:05.3.
"I will call this the epitome of 'Oregon Conditions': 43 degrees, raining, with a backdrop of rolling mountains. In other words: perfect," said Oregon State head coach Gabe Winkler. "These were tight races. Gonzaga looks strong this year, but we pushed ahead in all the boats in well executed pieces. Spring break is next week and we'll put in tons of strokes to find even more speed."
Oregon State's Varsity 8 was comprised of Ethan deBorja, Andrew Balsbaugh, Ryan Ghalayini, Brian Tames, Colin Lindquist, Tristan Gavin , Cal Labonski, Nils Patrick and Ryan Coulter.
The Beavers' JV8 was also victorious, besting Gonzaga with a time of 6:17.9. Oregon State's 3V8 and 4V8's took first and second, respectively in the third race of the day, out-pacing the Zag 3V8.
Oregon State will face off with Washington on April 2 in Seattle.
